Commentary: Noah, his family, and animals of every kind were saved from the flood. They were protected by the Lord, who then created a covenant with all mankind, through Noah. The Lord will never again send a flood to destroy the earth and all that live upon it. Noah’s decedents grew but chose to disobey the Lord by remaining together, one day deciding to try and reach heaven through their own means. The Lord stopped them by confusing their language, forcing them to spread out.
Focus Verses: 8:13-17 Noah could see the ground was dry, yet he remained in the ark until the Lord told him to exit. Do you wait for God’s timing in your life? What have been the results? How often do you seek the Lord’s guidance when making decisions?
